Brexit has happened and the ramifications are real. Grass-roots, right-wing political party ‘England Always’ is fomenting hatred. The residents of a failing housing estate are being cleared from their homes. A multinational tech company is making inroads into the infrastructure. A controversial tweet; a series of ill-judged think pieces; a riot of opinions – suddenly Edmundsbury is no longer the peaceful town it had always imagined itself to be.
